Site hosting in Google Drive:

Create a folder, then go back to the main folder, right click on the new folder and select "Share" then "Share:" then change the permissions from Private to "Public on the web"

When you open the folder, look at the URL. This one is:




Notice that last crazy part after the "?id= or "#folders/" part. In this folder it's 0B5biGEQ1GLz0Umg1Zk5CTGtaODA

That is the folders ID which is used to access it via the new hosting service. Start with the following URL, and add that folder ID:


So it looks like https://googledrive.com/host/0B5biGEQ1GLz0Umg1Zk5CTGtaODA/

That is the easy part. The tricky part is putting files in the folder that will show up on the new site. As it is, with no files, it will just show a file listing with nothing listed. Even if you add documents, they will not show up at the googledrive.com url unless they are of the correct type. In this case, you need to make plain text, HTML files.

The easiest way to do that is to make the files locally on your own computer using the .html extension after the file name, then upload them to google drive. If you attempt to edit the files as Google documents, they will be changed from .html files to .html.gdoc files and will no longer appear.
